Hi Experts!  I have another question since I can't seem to get it right and don't have the time to play with it.

I have a script that copies text from multiple text files and dumps it to a single "master" text file.  I need the single/master text file to have the name that matches the date that is being searched.

Example; if I am looking for the data for 03/13/2014, I need the master text file to be named Master_Log_File_03-13-2014.log.  The very first thing the script does is asks what date you are searching for:

How can I set the text file to be named what the search date is?  Thanks for your help.
@echo off
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
set CentralLog=Z:\Logs\TSM_Backups\Combined_TSMLogs.log
if "%~1"=="" (
	set FindDate=
	set /p FindDate=Enter date to search: 
) else (
	set FindDate=%~1
)
if "%FindDate%"=="" goto :eof
set CopyBegin=SCHEDULEREC STATUS BEGIN
set CopyEnd=SCHEDULEREC STATUS END
for /f "tokens=1 delims=[]" %%a in ('type "%~f0" ^| find /i /n "[DATA]"') do set DataStart=%%a
for /f "skip=%DataStart% delims=" %%a in ('type "%~f0"') do (
	set LogFile=%%a
	if "!LogFile:~0,2!"=="\\" (
		for /f "delims=\" %%s in ("!LogFile!") do set Server=%%s
	) else (
		set Server=%ComputerName%
	)
	echo Processing '!LogFile!' on !Server! ...
	set /a CopyFound = 0
	set /a Copy = 0
	for /f "delims=" %%b in ('type "!LogFile!" ^| findstr.exe "^%FindDate%"') do (
		set Line=%%b
		if !Copy!==0 (
			if not "!Line!"=="!Line:%CopyBegin%=!" (
				set /a CopyFound = 1
				set /a Copy = 1
				>>"%CentralLog%" echo ========== !Server! Start ============================================================
				>>"%CentralLog%" echo !Line!
			)
		) else (
			>>"%CentralLog%" echo !Line!
			if not "!Line!"=="!Line:%CopyEnd%=!" (
				set /a Copy = 0
				>>"%CentralLog%" echo ========== !Server! End ============================================================
			)
		)
	)
	if !CopyFound!==0 (
		echo No match found in '!LogFile!'.
	)
)
goto :eof

Try this; I took the freedom of creating the timestamp as yyyy-mm-dd, because then the files in the log folder will be correctly sorted by date.
@echo off
setlocal enabledelayedexpansion
set CentralLogPrefix=Z:\Logs\TSM_Backups\Combined_TSMLogs
if "%~1"=="" (
	set FindDate=
	set /p FindDate=Enter date to search: 
) else (
	set FindDate=%~1
)
if "%FindDate%"=="" goto :eof
for /f "tokens=1-3 delims=/" %%a in ("%FindDate%") do (set TimeStamp=%%c-%%a-%%b)
set CentralLog=%CentralLogPrefix%%TimeStamp%.log
echo Collecting logs in '%CentralLog%' ...
set CopyBegin=SCHEDULEREC STATUS BEGIN
set CopyEnd=SCHEDULEREC STATUS END
for /f "tokens=1 delims=[]" %%a in ('type "%~f0" ^| find /i /n "[DATA]"') do set DataStart=%%a
for /f "skip=%DataStart% delims=" %%a in ('type "%~f0"') do (
	set LogFile=%%a
	if "!LogFile:~0,2!"=="\\" (
		for /f "delims=\" %%s in ("!LogFile!") do set Server=%%s
	) else (
		set Server=%ComputerName%
	)
	echo Processing '!LogFile!' on !Server! ...
	set /a CopyFound = 0
	set /a Copy = 0
	for /f "delims=" %%b in ('type "!LogFile!" ^| findstr.exe "^%FindDate%"') do (
		set Line=%%b
		if !Copy!==0 (
			if not "!Line!"=="!Line:%CopyBegin%=!" (
				set /a CopyFound = 1
				set /a Copy = 1
				>>"%CentralLog%" echo ========== !Server! Start ============================================================
				>>"%CentralLog%" echo !Line!
			)
		) else (
			>>"%CentralLog%" echo !Line!
			if not "!Line!"=="!Line:%CopyEnd%=!" (
				set /a Copy = 0
				>>"%CentralLog%" echo ========== !Server! End ============================================================
			)
		)
	)
	if !CopyFound!==0 (
		echo No match found in '!LogFile!'.
	)
)
goto :eof
